Key updates to the ICE Poker Metaverse UI to begin internal testing of Play-to-Earn gameplay

DG Yields + Treasury Update + Press
This Week’s Events
We’ve completed development of the ICE Poker welcome and check-in modals, and have begun testing the gameplay for challenges.
When a player arrives in an ICE Poker venue, they see the ICE wearable(s) they currently hold, or have been delegated. Based on the rank of their ICE wearable(s), the corresponding amount of Chips appear on the join button.
Each player’s daily leaderboard ranking based on their percentile appears on the top-right while daily ICE challenges and expected ICE payout appear on the bottom-right of the UI. For more details on how this will work in production, check out the ICE Poker Whitepaper.
We look forward to fine tuning the Play-to-Earn gameplay and will open it up to private beta testing shortly.
